Live Chat: Explaining the Looming Sequester

Thursday, February 28, 2013 - 11:00 AM

Sequestration is pretty simple on the surface — it's basically a set of scheduled budget cuts — but the details behind it, and the potential effects, are complicated. In an effort to shed some light on sequestration and help you better understand it, we've partnered with The Guardian U.S. on the live chat you see below.

Here's how it works: Ask a question, and our own Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich and The Guardian's Heidi Moore will serve up an answer. If you have your own thoughts or insights to add, feel free to do so. You can also follow the conversation on Twitter with the hashtag #sequesterchat.
